checking in with my YC/BC friends

Hello friends,
I feel like its been forever since I've checked in and caught up on you guys!
We are now in April and my January trip seems so long ago - remember how its started out so awful with DH stuck in Canada? But it turned out so wonderful and it was all thankful to the wonderful tips and things I learned about the YC right here.
I'm afraid its going to be quite a while before I get back to my new favorite home of YC. January 2014 we are doing a group visit with 5 families for DH's 40th birthday and the Poly was hotel of choice (not mine of course) and then July 2014 we are setting sail on a disney alaska cruise for my 40th so Im afraid it will be at least a year or so before we get back to the YC.
Thanks to you guys (and you know who I'm talking about) - I am addicted to SUNKEN TREASURES :-) oh it is my drink of choice and i now relax with those at night, instead of a glass of wine. one sip and i am back sitting at SAB with my feet in the sand, relaxing....a little piece of heaven....
I hope everyone is well and I'm going to try and catch up on the boards - its amazing how much you miss by being out of touch for a little while

This is our first time staying at the BC and I'm really nervous that it seems the resort is booked solid. Will this have a negative effect on our stay? Does anyone have any experience with the resort being booked while they were there? Thanks!

Even if just 1 night is sold out it will show no availability. But, that is the end of Jersey Week, a marathon weekend and right before Veterans Day. It will be quite busy.

I don't remember the room we had, but it was on the second floor just down the hall from the elevator / stairs that lead to the lobby. It was a great location since we could use the stairs instead of waiting for the elevator. If I were staying there I would request to be closest to the lobby that way your not all the way down the last wing close to the Swan/Dolphin.

Enjoy your stay!!!

P.S. we are doing a Poly/BC split stay for the first time this year!! Any suggestions on making the transfer easy would be much appreciated!
Thanks for the room location suggestion. If we were that close to Swan/Dolphin I would be tired just walking to Epcot
Transfer is very easy. On the morning you're checking out just call bell services and tell them what hotel you are going to and they will send the bags over. Don't expect the bags before 4 so be sure totake anything you might need with you. Poly/BC is my favorite split

What is a Bounce Back Offer?

Bounce Back is a promotion offered at selected times throughout the year offering a discount on a future trip if you book WHILE YOU ARE STILL AT THE RESORT. It used to be left on a card in your room, but now is part of the Be Our Guest guide that you should receive at checkin. You can also dial #8844 from any resort phone to see if a bounceback promotion is being offered and what the eligibility requirements are.

You MUST book it before you check-out. Once you get home, you can change the dates or cancel it. However, once you check-out, even if you give them your reservation number and say you were just there, they won't allow you to book it.


Thanks for the photos, MickeyT!
Thanks Dee! Im glad it's included as I think this would be an great time to go. I've never been to Food & Wine Festival nor MNSSHP!

Can any clarify what it says in the white area under the 35% deluxe discount? I think it says specific dates, but I can't read it. Can the dates be different then the highlighted dates on the calendar?

I think the confusion came from this post:


I think Julie meant that she had booked the bounce back for the last week of October, but she would have preferred the week before. She'll switch to the week before if a discount comes through for that week. I was confused at first, too.
Thanks for clarifying. I was reading it wrong. I thought last 2wks was in bounce back so I was confused. I had it in my mind DH & I could go during that time frame as I happily found Dee's bounce back post last wk! As Dee's so thorough, cough, cough!

1st try!! So jealous! Our last trip we couldn't get a reservation so I was hoping to get in this time.

Oh, I was hoping they'd have a better deal for you, $90 isn't as much of a discount as I thought it would be!

Hi ALMMY baybee!!!!

The nice thing about this thread is that you can pick it right up again. It doesn't matter where you left off. All are welcome, new friends and old timers! There are also a wealth of tips that appear here that are good for stays just about any where, so tune in when you get a chance and maybe you'll discover something helpful for your other stays.

It was great to hear of your latest obsession. Summer will soon be upon us and no one that reads this board will be at a loss for drink ideas to serve when guests come over.

Sorry - I'm causing all kinds of confusion! Wood Nymph got it. I should have clarified to say that we are booked for the last full week in October (20th-27th), but we'd like to change to the week prior to that (13th-20th).

I just booked the beach club for May 29th-June 2. We are so excited to stay here for the first time. I have a question about the storm along bay. Do you have to be a good swimmer to use the slide? My boys are young, and it seems like they wore life jackets at the Contemporary pool slide.

It includes the last weekend of the F&W too.

I was unable to book a garden room at either YC or BC for late October. All signs point to a busy fall!

I've been so bummed about not returning to the BC this summer BUT I'm very excited that I just booked a surprise trip for DH & I in October (his 50th & our 28th wedding anniversary ). First time going without the kids too! He's going to be sooo shocked!! Dee, please add us to the BOG list...we will be there 10/20-10/23.... cannot wait to attend F&W again!

The first full week of December is booked for the BC, too. Which means that I can't be tempted to switch from the WL for our next trip.

It is often full and it has never affected our trips.
